boss, help me recheck the bolded
I just put those words there because they sounded like O - umlaut somehow. If you pronounce girl like the white. You should be able to get a sound close to O - umlaut.


I don't think there is an English equivalent for O-umlaut but it sounds more like German öl (oil)


@janette, is there any English equivalent for O-umlaut undecided

Totally forgot your mention!..

Honestly it's not that hard, just practice the vocabulary everyday. Don't try to learn everything at once, if you are still in A1, learn everything in A1. Don't jump into A2 until you are done with A1.

Download the Duolingo app.


YouTube is great to learn how to pronounce words especially if you are a beginner.

Practice what you learn!. It was easy for me cause I was already living in Germany and thus got to interact with people in German.

If you are in Nigeria however, my advice would be to download this app on Google play (forgotten the name). There you will meet other language learners and you get to interact with them in the language you are learning, if you make any mistake, the person you are interacting with will correct you.

Watch German series.

And lastly visit dw.com/deutschlernen. It has many resources for learning German.

I think the only thing that helped me the most was visiting an intensive German course, my teachers helped me a lot and are still helping me...

We are still on verb. So let's continue

Transitive and Intransitive Verbs

Also as in English, German verbs are divided into two basic grammatical categories: transitive verbs and intransitive verbs. A transitive verb is a verb that requires a direct object.

Take, for example, the verb to describe. He describes is an incomplete statement; it is necessary to specify what he describes. An intransitive verb is one that does not require a direct object. An example of an intransitive verb is to live. The utterance he lives can by itself be a complete sentence and thus can stand alone.

Some verbs may be used either as transitive verbs or as intransitive verbs, e.g., he whistled as he worked and he whistled a tune.

Personal Endings
I have explained this but not clear to some people. So i will explain it in a way everyone will understand very well

Unlike most English verbs, German verbs normally take personal endings, which indicate both the person and the number of the subject of that verb. Like English, German distinguishes between the first person, the second person, and the third person. Moreover, each of these grammatical persons can be either singular or plural.

For you to get the picture of what am saying, let's us use kommen as an example

For the first person - ich komme
For the second person - du kommst
For the third person - er/sie/es kommt

So you see the difference. The general rule is infinitive stem + personal ending

Strong Verbs and Weak Verbs

There are two [2] basic types of verbs in German: strong verbs and weak verbs.

Weak verbs keep the same stem vowel throughout all their forms, and strong verbs have stem vowel changes in their past tenses.

As a general rule, the weak verbs have regular and predictable forms, whereas the strong verbs are irregular.

Since, however, there are irregular weak verbs and certain predictable patterns for strong verbs, we will not use the terms regular and irregular verbs, but will instead refer to verbs as weak, strong, or mixed

###
Note that Since the patterns for the strong verbs and the irregular weak verbs are not fully predictable, it is essential to learn all the principal parts of such verbs when they are first introduced.


The three principal parts of a verb that must be learned are the infinitive, the past tense, and the past participle. In some cases a fourth form of the German verb must also be memorized—the second or third-person singular of the present tense, since a small group of strong verbs also have vowel changes in these forms.

As an English speaker, you are already familiar with the phenomenon that some verbs have no vowel changes in their various forms while others do.

Compare, for example, regular verbs such as play, played, played and paint, painted, painted with irregular verbs such as sing, sang, sung and think, thought, thought.

Study the principal parts of strong and weak verbs illustrated below by the verbs spielen to play and singen to sing.

Weak verb
Infinitive - Spielen
Past tense - Spielte
Past participle - gespielt

Strong verb
Infinitive - Singen
Past tense - Sang
Past participle - gesungen

Lol.. As an English speaker, learning German words shouldn't be a problem because the basic most frequent 200 words are mostly cognates with English.

Once you know a base set of words it becomes easier to learn new words because German likes to compound nouns. If you know der Schrank is a cupboard, then it is easy to learn der Kühlschrank is "refrigerator".

If you are not a very strong reader however these compound nouns can be a challenge rather than an advantage.

The morphology of German can be hard for many people too. German is a highly complex language with a seemingly never-ending string of grammar rules that students need to learn and put into practice but sometimes frustratingly context-specific vocabulary.

However, the rules which are designed to make sense of the language are fairly consistent and logical and German words allow for precision that gives the language its depth.

In short, the complexity of the German language is at once cause for frustration for those who attempt to learn it and joy for those who master it cheesy

What you need to do is to internalise and appreciate the logic of its grammar and understand the context-drivenness of its vocabulary and lots of practice

Note that German is 75% grammar and 25% words

Notice

1) The question word "woher" is slightly different from wo. Both are used to ask for a location

Wo- indicates when something is situated
Woher- indicates when something or someone comes from

2) The question word is nearly always followed by a verb. For example

Woher kommst du?
Wie heiße du?

But there are exceptions for example "wie alt bist du" here wie alt can be considered as one entity.

3) To express how a person is feeling, we use the verb "sein" The verb changes according to the person whose feelings we're describing.

Der Mann ist fröhlich
Ich bin müde

Don't worry about this for how, we will come back to it in more detail soon

4) Wie geht's is a short form of wie geht es dir. It is quicker and more casual.
